A great beginning of the year activity to get to know your students! This would make a great activity for the first week of school or as something to showcase on Open House / Back to School night! You are learning about your students and they get to learn more about each other! It's also a creative way for students to set goals, express their favorites, and have something to look back on for their school year in your grade.
What a great idea for conferences~! This teacher makes a board of some handouts perfect for practicing at home, because so many times the parents want to help but aren't sure how (or don't have the materials). Brilliant!
